environmental campaigner and consultant
In 30 years of environmental campaigning, including as Director of both Friends of the Earth Scotland and WWF Scotland, I have helped bring an end to fracking, shape two Climate Acts, block plans for oil fields and power stations, create Low Emission Zones in four cities and get government to start taking Just Transition seriously. I also helped set up Transform Scotland and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, and chaired the Edinburgh Community Solar Coop.
I am now a freelance researcher and writer on climate and energy, and an advisor on campaign, advocacy, comms and organisational strategy.
